I've seen many websites with "Guides" For in game playing. As some people here are new to this "EV Training" And "IV Breeding". Maybe there should be a place where you can upload guides or if there is one, why I have not seen any guides.

There's a FAQ in DPPt.
However, I think what's done, in general, is people go to offsite instead. PC is an independent forum, so it can afford that luxury it seems to me.

For EVing, there are links I'm sure to Smogon, and whatnot. And for other stuff, people can just check Bulbapedia or Serebii.net [its Pokearth and whatnot are enough for a guide, plus both have game mechanics]. ):

I mean, yeah, we could have more FAQs and whatnot here, but what's the point when it already exists? I mean, why redundantize it? XD

I see your point. Although , it would be nice to have some here. I'm not a begger. It's just it seems that a lot of people here don't pay attention to the FAQ anyway.

Why have it when, as you say:

It's just it seems that a lot of people here don't pay attention to the FAQ anyway.

I mean, they can be nice, and it's cool when they're written by the community, but if it's already done.. why bother XD; But that's just my input on the matter. I might be wrong for all I know :B

I guess that is convincing. I already know there is more than like 100 forums that have guides in them.

Why create a guide when it's a foregone conclusion that it will pale in comparison to those one can find at Smogon, among other sites devoted to these sort of things?

Exactly.

There are sites such as smogon,serebii and bulbapedia, who have plenty of guides. (and on pokemon.marriland.com he uploads videos of his playthroughs and battles.I personally think there's enough, and when people want to, they explain it to others in their own words anyway

I actually, know what you guys mean. There are like a large amount of websites that have them. Nobody needs to tell me these again. Unless a point is proven ._.
